Canada holds a special place in our heart. For a number of years in the late 90's Louise and I would spend at least 10 days a year snowboarding in Alberta & British Columbia. The exchange rate was good and the snow was amazing .... it was also flipping cold.
We used to have breakfast in the same dinner every morning and we'd watch the truck drivers and lumberjacks sitting at the dinner bar having their '4 or 5 egg' omelettes. I noticed they were all wearing the same light yellow leather gloves. I bought a pair and they've been my 'go to' gloves ever since ... and are still going strong some 20 years later.
Watson Gloves have been making these classic Canadian leather gloves since 1918. They've developed the materials they use over those years but the durability born of making gloves for Canadian dockers, lumberjacks and mechanics is still going strong. We tested quite a lot of their range and selected the best ones we think work in the UK for gardening, in the garage or workshop.
